Don’t miss out on the adventure of a lifetime at the 24th World Scout Jamboree taking place in West Virginia, USA in 2019. Lonsdale District are looking for 5 young people to send to the next World Scout Jamboree…
This is a once in a lifetime experience to share a camp with 40,000 Scouts and Guides from across 150 countries and territories from around the world! In West Lancs, we have space to take 36 young people for their biggest adventure yet. Due to the age restrictions and the fact World Scout Jamborees only happen every four years, young people only get one opportunity to attend a World Scout Jamboree. So, it really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
